When you imagine a tiger, what probably comes to mind is the fierce and majestic beast at the very top of the food chain. They seem like there is nothing that can bring them down, and they rule over all the animals in the entirety of Asia. Just under a century ago, that picture would be mostly accurate. But now humans are hunting these striped creatures into near extinction, and their loss of habitat makes their revival very unlikely. If something isn’t done to stop this, tigers will become nothing more than a thing of the past. As their numbers drop rapidly, two causes are the most prominent. Poaching and habitat destruction are causing the tiger population to reduce swiftly.
Poaching is having a horrible effect on the tiger population and causing their numbers to drop significantly. Despite the fact that the hunting of tigers is extremely illegal, poachers still risk it because of how much money they can make. One tiger split into all of its different parts can sell for over $70,000 on the black market. This is mostly because many tiger parts are believed to have miraculous medicinal uses in traditional remedies, even though science has proved otherwise. People also use tiger parts as symbols of strength, from a tiger pelt as a rug to a necklace strung with tiger teeth and claws. Nearly every tiger part has some sort of spiritual use in Chinese culture, and a lot of people are willing to break the law for their traditions. Additionally, meat from tigers is consumed by many

Is this conservation? According to the video, nowadays Texas has a higher exotic wildlife than any other place on Earth.

Though all the qualities that man gives to the tiger is not true about it, it is however the way the mind of man shapes the tiger to exist in the mind. How the tiger is understood does not change what the tiger is in real existence just in cognitional existence. This is not saying that humans cannot come to know who or what another being is, rather, depending on the complexity of a thing, it takes interaction and contemplation to know another being. So the Detroit Tigers baseball team does reflect characteristics of a pack of tigers while at the same time still being human. It is from here that it becomes related on a singular level.
High school football in Massillon , Ohio is an eagerly anticipated season. Part of what the locals look forward to is Obie, a live tiger cub http://www.care2.com/causes/investigation-exposes-extreme-tiger-cub-abuse-and-neglect-at-roadside-zoos.html who is leased to Massillon Washington High School.

(Stevens) This in line with disease can cause a detrimental decrease in the wolf population. Other things that can affect the population include precision rates, natural disasters and soil fertility.(Chadwick). As the wolf population decreases their is a loss in all of their roles that were mentioned above. These include a loss of diversity, a lack of the damn and thus a pond, and an increases an increase in the Elk population. With a decrease of wolf population also comes a later increase in population.

Poaching Is Affecting Our Lives One day there was a man walking in the desert and then there was other man coming from the opposite side with a gun. On the other side there is a elephant drinking water and the guy with the gun shot and killed the elephant. The other guy just walk up to that man and said “ Did that animal choose to die” I feel like it should be a bigger deal than it currently is, all though some people think poaching isn’t a big deal,Poaching is a big problem in the world today. It is important to know the difference between hunting and poaching,The amount of how many animals are getting killed, and what you can do to help prevent it.
Everything happens for a reason, through this cycle of extinction its only nature doing its job. However, there is steps we all can take to slow it down. For instance, we need to repair the damage done through habitat loss, hunting, and any other human-caused problems. If we all join together to not liter, try to recycle, and stop killing animals for a sport it will help drastically.
“Lions and tigers, and bears, oh my! - Dorothy in Wizard of Oz” Could these, and many other animals not exist in the near future? “Between 40%-50% of endangered species in the U.S. are improving or stable, but the others are moving toward extinction. While the law has driven the rebirth of 36 species, a similar number have disappeared.” Lions, tigers, and are just some of the animals, that have been threatened,but thanks to organizations such as WWF,(The World Wildlife Organization), many of these species have been rising in numbers. But one of the hot issues in world today is if the Endangered species act is doing an efficient job at protecting endangered species.
Animal overpopulation of companion animals has been a huge issue in the US for a long time. I didn’t realize how big of an issue this was until about age 11 when I noticed how bad they get treated when they are not taken care of. I am so excited to tell people how they can solve this problem. I have helped with this issue in many ways. I have 2 kittens that we saved on the highway, a momma kitty who had her 2 babies under our house, 1 cat that was roaming our neighborhood and 1 cat from a drive through.

Poaching and illegal hunting can cause an off set in the ecosystem by overhunting animals. When one animal population decline drastically, other organisms are affected too. The decline in native predators is the main cause for overpopulation of animals like deer. Deer overpopulation has led to rapid decrease vegetation life causing other animals to be put at risk. Removing predators from the food web disrupts the entire balance of an
B. Still, trophy hunters kill roughly 600 of these animals every year, compounding lions ' to other threats, like habitat loss and retaliatory killing as an endangered species. ( Pimm. Pg 2 ) II. Hunting is clearly not the same as is was in the good old days.
The Amur Leopard is an animal that is usually known as the "zoo leopard" as it looks like what you would see when you think of a leopard. But this leopard is going extinct and it is only getting worse. The downsides of having the Amur Leopard going extinct are that other species will be overpopulated and being able to move a notch up the food chain. If this were to happen the ecosystem would be in a terrible state because other animals that are used to the Amur Leopard wouldn't be able to use it and such. If the Amur Leopards go extinct another species of animal will go extinct due to human activity like poaching, destruction of habitat, and pollution.
